Martin Truex, Jr. led the final 28 laps and all of them came after he passed Ryan Newman for the lead and went on to win Sunday night's Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.  It's the second win of the season for Truex and the fifth of his career.

The best car on the track belonged to Kevin Harvick who led a race-high 214 laps.  Harvick had to settle for second place though and after the race he placed the blame squarely on his pit crew.  After a problem with an air gun during a pit stop on Lap 281 Harvick left pit road in 12th place after entering with the lead.  He spent the rest of the race trying to weave way back to the front but couldn't do it.

Harvick's second place finish is the 17th in the last 61 races and most of the time it's been problems in the pits that prevented him from winning.   Harvick said the guys in the pits get paid a lot of money to do what they do - they just have to do their jobs.

Kyle Larson, last week's winner at Michigan, came in third with Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano closing out the Top 5.

Just one more race next week on Saturday night at Richmond before the driver standings are re-set heading into the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship.  Of the drivers without a victory Ryan Newman is seven points back of Jamie McMurray.
